8:00am
the first nine meetings we made most progress on the third objective and sharing information about plans and priorities. in the first two years we discussed a series of operator case studies by the sfpuv on water and wastewater systems and pg&e on gas and electric systems and at&t and tell communications and learned about the city's priorities for roots and response planning for the emergency operation center and the capital program. we launched a independent study last year and making progress on the second objective to understand intersystem dependencies and enhance reconstruction. i love this chart because it showsow interdependent we are with one another. this is part our study that we launched earlier this year. this is a cutting edge
8:01am
project that we know will benefit all of our operators and the cities and regions and residents. the objectives were developed by the councilmembers. first we want to build a workable understanding of our systems interdependencies and the conseqnces of existing conditions and help restoration and response among agencies. we are using a 2006 study and repeat of the earthquake as our scenario event and we will have a complete scenario of the likely buildings and damages resulting from such a earthquake. we hope to identify the key assets restoration priorities and the region after such an earthquake and develop performance expectations under the current conditions and standards to
8:02am
strive for in the next decade and communication is critical and fuel is critical to our life line and utilities and roads right after that. we've focus the right now on the roads and vs access roads available and water, gas, electricity. i wanted to give you a success story from our life lines council and that is right now pg&e is proposing a embarcadero portearo transition line for redundancy. as you know we are fed by three groups off the peninsula and loss of a substation in san francisco could create much instability and affect reliability of the
8:03am
system. embarcadero currently supplying power from the mid-market substations and through those soils. repair could take eight hours to several weeks. maintaining the embarcadero station is critical to the san francisco downtown and waterfront region. the system of reliability was raised during the study interview with pg&e in november 2011 and pg&e followed up with the council getting support to ada third connection to the embarcadero station with this going to the portero substation and improve system reliability particularly into the downtown area in a major earthquake and allow pg&e more flexibility with work and unexpected equipment outages. they gave three routes and options to provide feedback and you can see from the box, the
8:04am
green, red and blue routes so pg&e is continuing to work with the city and the project design and the approval process and hopes to begin work in 2014 or 2015. so looking ahead we will be completing the life line interdependences study in 2013. we are also in the process of developing a work program then. in the last meeting in september we asked participants to identify issues to all operators and for the city to develop the restoration plan and performance expectations, restoration priority and capability. we will select a few of these to work together on over the next year. we plan to have quarterly meetings and have them include educational component to help dwns the mutual knowledge and guide the work and continue to have robust exchanges among
8:05am
ourselves and the key agencies and cal-ema and fema and others providing resources post disaster so thank you. >> thank you very much. that was very informative. thank you. i would like to ask now john boseman to come join me who is the government affairs manager for boma and the mayor mentioned it early ye today. i think john has a one minute film he's going to show and he's also going to be -- as you know in each of the agenda's we ask a community partner to come up and do a brief presentation so we know what they're up to so john i turn it over to you. >> thank you. i appreciate it. happy friday afternoon. it's an honor to be here with so many distinguished city leaders. i
8:06am
am humbled and admiral thank you for your good work. it's an honor to be in the same room. who knows what this is? good. that sames me time. i'm here to talk about the importance of this room and building and the good work that we do, the building managers and downtown rises in downtown san francisco. i can't stress enough how our members feel the value this room brings to them and when the giants wins and the parade goes down montgomery room we will be in this room and our members that have jobs and will volunteer. why? because they see that value. the value is there is information that we can deliver and where we exist downtown mostly and information here at the city level that can be delivered to us and vice versa. that the absolute value of this room and i can't wait
8:07am
to be back here actually. how does this public-private partnership work? well, for us we started off with our members via emergency preparedness committee and there were many people and it's a hard subject to talk about and everybody is busy. they don't have a lot of time. they're managing buildings and dealing with things and it's tough but we managed to do it and only because sfpm, the police department, fire department and the mayor's office has helped us and jim where are you? he's the private sector liaison and thank you for all your har work. i appreciate it. i want to talk about the efficacy of this partnership. we hold a drill every year. and in two 000 at on california and
8:08am
2009 at ferry building and vacated it in the morning and when bart was going to strike and we were ready and ten on mid-market and this year two fire drills and the chief's wife is here and her team was spectacular and the they had two drills and i will show you a video in a minute. why do we do that? why do we have our member dos that? because we want to test that response plan because it's no good on paper unless you test it and we do that. we run drills and it takes about a drill to do, to plan. we work with the public sector agency and it was the fire department and next year alsolet fire department and we had drills with the police department swat and a day long drill and you name the emergency we probably planned for it, and i am not here to brag. i am here to tell you these drills help and we
8:09am
can't do that without the city and our members get the lessons from that drill. anyway i won't take too much more of your time. again i am honored to be here. this is a video of the drill and it's somewhat funny -- and a seminar we put on (siren). (music). "fire". "fire". "fire". "woo, woo, woo" "fire". "when you walk and talk really
